I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Phil (or Bobby) once said that the Mind Left Body Jam wasn't (consciously) based on anything. "It was just a chord progression we came up with."

unfortunately i can't remember where I read that.

i came across this yesterday at

"Phil Lesh has stated repeatedly and with great emphasis that the "jam that has been called Mind Left Body" is no such thing, and bears no conscious influence whatsoever from the BvTB song which Deadheads have named it after. The "Mud Love Buddy" title on Dozin' at the Knick is specifically a humorous jab at tape traders who affixed a formal title to a loose musical structure which the band themselves never, apparently, named even obliquely or even referred to verbally. They would simply end up landing on those chords every now and again and would fool with them for awhile.
